Senior Texas Tech wideouts Jarrett Hicks and Joel Filani both were invited to attend the NFL combine in Indianapolis. After outstanding collegiate careers in Lubbock, TX, they are looking to take their talent to the next level. How did these two Red Raider greats stack up against the other top receivers in college football? RaiderPower.com has your exclusive look inside the NFL combine.

Aundrae Allison/East Carolina: Caught the ball well making several tough over the shoulder grabs yet did not do a good job running routes as he tended to round his breaks.

David Ball/New Hampshire:  Inconsistent in the early going then turned it on at the end and caught everything in site.  Was very slow out of his breaks.

Reggie Ball/Georgia TechImproved as the session proceeded but dropped a lot of passes early on and practiced as slow as he ran.

Dwayne Bowe/LSUDisplayed very sure and strong hands.  Extended to make the reception away from his frame, offering the passer a great target and was very natural catching the ball.  Consistently snatched the pass from the air.  

Steve Breaston/MichiganCapitalized on a terrific running workout by catching the ball well.  Moved into the first day.

Aaron Fairooz/Central Arkansas: Ran very slow in practice.  Seemed all over the place and struggled to make the catch downfield at full speed.

Yamon Figures/Kansas StateQuietly had one of the better performances.  Ran fast, ran terrific routes and at one point was out running the throws from many of the quarterbacks.  Easily made the deep reception at full speed.

Joel Filani/Texas TechOverall did a nice job.  Caught the deep pass well and ran solid routes.

Anthony Gonzalez/Ohio StateTremendous workout.  After some fast forties Gonzalez settled down and caught everything thrown in his direction.  Running very sharp routes he made some tremendous receptions.  At one point he was cutting the line of receiver to take extra reps with the passers.

Jason Hill/Washington StateAfter shocking everyone with super fast times in the forty, Hill caught the ball well.  

James Jones/San Jose StateGenerally seemed very aware and did a good job consistently making the reception away from his frame.

Mike Mason/Tennessee State:  Practiced as fast as he ran his forties.  Showed some sharpness running routes but did not display soft hands.

Syvelle Newton/South CarolinaFor a player that has switched to numerous positions, Newton looked very natural catching the ball.  He caught the deep pass well and consistently made the reception away from his frame.  His route running needs a lot of work.

Sidney Rice/South Carolina:   Ran hard and practiced fast.  Caught the ball cleanly snatching the ball from the air.  Did not display a second gear on the deep receptions.

Laurent Robinson/Illinois StatePracticed fast showing good hands.  Offers the quarterback a nice target and adjusted well to the pass.

Ryne Robinson/Miami-Oh: Practiced faster then he timed in the forty.  Ran some very sharp routes.  

Steve Smith/USCWhen all is said and done, Smith probably helped himself more than any other receiver.   He ran good routes, showed hands of glue and practiced as fast as he ran during the forty.
